As I have not actually seen the students working on a task in groups, I decided to include such form
of an activity in the lesson and it turned out to be a great success. I could observe how the pupils
worked together, how they helped each other and how they divided among themselves the smaller
tasks needed to complete the assignment. It showed me that peer cooperation can happen also
among pupils as young as 6/7 year old.
